Floral table decor

Flowers are favorites when it comes to decor, and they add an idyllic touch to any location. However, rather than just placing a pot of flowers on the table, get creative! Lay a trailing vine of foliage and flowers to bring your guests into a woodland, or place them in a bell jar a la Beauty and the Beast. Birdcages are also unexpectedly elegant intertwined in flowers!

While terrariums are most commonly used for storing plants, the unassuming glass containers can practically make everything look exquisite. An arrangement of wildflowers look beautiful in a terrarium, and you can even place strands of fairy lights for a magical touch. Take it a step further and recreate miniature scenes in theme with your event for a picture-worthy centerpiece.

Candles are very romantic, and look awe-inspiring when placed together. With candles available in different shapes, sizes and colors, you can create a centerpiece that best represents the mood of your event. Place them in vintage lanterns for an old-world vibe, or in various mason jars for a casual and stylish environment. Candlelight is extremely flattering for photographs too, so you are essentially bestowing your guests with a photo opportunity in every corner!

Whoever said you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Edible centerpieces combine decor with catering, so you can have the best of both worlds. Besides, a pleasant aesthetic has been proven to make food taste better!

The sky (or rather the ceiling) is the limit when it comes to decorating your venue. Hanging decor add a whimsical touch, and there are a myriad of options other than hanging lights. Hang driftwood or branches for a rustic ambience, or take artsy reference from The Umbrella Sky project in Portugal and hang colorful umbrellas for a quirky tone. Huge balloons are also fun to see at an event.
